Hit and run accidents can be a traumatic and stressful experience. If you are the victim of a hit and run accident, it is important to take the right steps to protect yourself.
Contact the police immediately to report the hit and run accident. It’s important to provide as much information in your report as possible. Information such as the make and model of the car, the license plate number, and a description of the driver can help the police identify and locate the driver.
If you were injured in an accident, seek medical attention right away. Regardless, it is still a good idea to be evaluated by a healthcare professional. Some injuries may not be evident until later. Seeking medical attention immediately will ensure that you receive the necessary care in case you are more seriously injured than you feel. It’s also a good way to document your injuries for a legal claim.
Make sure to take photos of the accident scene as well as any damage to your vehicle/property. Noting down any details you remember about the accident, such as the time, location, and weather conditions, can be a big help down the road.
If you or a loved one were involved in a hit and run, an experienced personal injury lawyer can help you understand your legal rights and options. It’s important to find a lawyer that has experience with accidents just like yours.
